Ikebana 11/27/2014

IMG_6650_convert_20141128091320.jpg

I had composed this arrangement of Star of Bethlehem ( or Ornithagolum, オーニソガラム), Anthurium (アンスリウム), and Lemon Leaf (レモンリーフ).

I haven't had an Ikebana lesson for a while, so I had felt like arranging flowers by myself and I went to a flower shop the other day.
The shop had few branches or leaves unfortunately, but there were a lot of flowers.

When I have a lesson as usual, my Ikebana teacher had already prepared some materials for me. And then I think how to arrange them by myself.
So, this time, it was difficult for me to choose materials there, and it took a long time to choose some.
I wanted to pick up one by one to choose one because each flower has its own character, but the shop clerk didn't want customers to touch the flowers.

After all, I had a good time not only to arrange flowers but also to choose materials or a container by myself.

I'm looking forward to having a lesson for Christmas Ikebana next time.

Usually when I have a lesson, my Ikebana teacher will have already prepared some materials for me. I then think how to arrange them by myself.
So, this time, it was difficult for me to choose my materials at the flower shop, and so, it took a long time.

I wanted to pick up the flowers and closely examine them because each flower has its own character, but the shop clerk didn't want customers to touch the flowers.

I not only had a good time in the arranging of the flowers, but also in the choosing of the materials, and of the container, by myself.

I'm looking forward to having a lesson in *Christmas Ikebana next time.

*If my understanding is correct in that Christmas Ikebana uses a style particular to Christmas time.


Re: English Corrections

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

Usually, a Chiristmas Ikebana can keep until Christmas time. I can enjoy it for a long time, but if some of flowers wither I'll replace with new ones.
As soon as Christmas passes, I'll arrange New Year's Ikebana.

At first, I had thought that you made a mistake about 'will have already prepared'. Then I looked up reference books and learned it.
